    PS - I was expecting the T'Log to start with a big Thanks for all those who voted, or did I expect too much
    The vote of thanks is generally given at the end. Yeah if I fail to do it, would consider myself to be ungrateful. The votes are the reason why this log is up

    PPS - Rated the max possible hoping the log will be completed soon
    Sure Sir, will be done soon

    Was the Ratnagiri route as expected not enough rains this time though!
    It was nice meeting you Satyen. Saw you zoom past me, but didnt expect that u might turn back for a chat. It was nice meeting a fellow biker on the road. The coastal route was raining, but not by the true konkan standards, but Ganapatipule and Ratnagiri got the best of me Overall it was an amazing journey. In the end, that is what matters, right

    Nice to see the trip log here Bring on the rest!

    Where did you get the Givi box from? And is it mounted on the touring rack from tourer gears?

    @Manoj and Haroon : The Givi was borrowed from a fellow Xbhpian. The top box from GIVI, is available on JC Road, but not the side panniers. The GiVi was very sturdy and fitting was bang on.

    @Manoj : No, the racks are not from Tourer Gears. They have not come out with the racks for the ZMA yet. Racks for P220,R15,KTM, CBR250 are ready.

    Day 2:
    Route: -Kaas Platue-Mahabaleshwar-Wai-Shindewadi-Khed-Lavasa-Dehu Road-Chakan-Malshej-Chasole


    The day started, with the bike drenched the whole night, but me not complaining. First dish on the menu was Kaas Platue, over expecting the flowers to bloom soon after the first rains. Took around 45 min to reach Kaas, forget the flowers, couldnt even see the road properly because of the fog and rain, so much that missed the sign board(If at all it was there) to Mahabaleshwar, bt took the same road to Satara and then to Mahabaleshwar. Found this wonderful spot near Kanher dam( If I remember correctly).







    It was drizzling with intermediate breaks in between. Loneliness best experienced. Leave from there to start the climb, it starts pouring and the visibility at its all time low. Take a break at Hotel Shreyas for some heavy breakfast, wasnt sure when the lunch will be served. Entered the restraunt with a dripping jacket and request the manager if he could arrange a separate table so that I dont spoil their dining space, but he was like Its alright Sir, u are more important more than the tables and chairs clean bowled on the first ball. Saw a board that read breakfast buffet Rs.120/- and the menu that comes along. For a person who hogs a double unlimited meals for breakfast, what more does he need. Unfortunately that was only on weekends, so settle for a Dosa for now. The journey towards Pune start thereafter. Rain gods show some mercy post Mahabs.



    From Harrison's Folley, Panchgani








    The cops stop me at Khed, some distance after the toll. Check the documents thoroughly and tell their Sahib that this guy has gone mad(in Marathi, this much Marathi I can understand). Reach Chakan and ask a rickshaw wala, during a butt break for directions to Malshej, the way he told, every single turn, the distance between each village, rivers bridges etc etc , oh my god , he put any GPS to shame.

    Somewhere post Narayangaon




    Finally reach Pimpalgaon Dam, the dam was only a fiction for that moment , couldnt see ten steps ahead of me. Start a conversation with one of the shacks which was selling corn to kill some time as well as shelter from rain. Found a very basic accommodation, thanks to the corn seller. Dump the luggage and try some roads off NH222.


    A localite suggested Chasole, which had a temple. Coming back was the highlight of the story, becomes dark, dense fog coupled with rain, could not see the road, just kept getting closer to some light I saw far away, hoping it to be the highway, In the process, trespassed into some farm mistaking it to be a road. Fun it was ultimately.



    Finally after may be hour or so reach the highway and stop at a shack which served some yummy dish, which had very close resemblance to Poha, but not Poha.
